Gear Squared Away

Saturday 5 August 1944,  8:20 AM

Dearest Eleanor,

          How is my Sweet this morning?  Just finished breakfast and thought I'd better write you immediately because I'll be busy today.

          Spent a quiet day yesterday.  Got my gear all squared away.  Now that Dr. Sayer has left.  Lots of room.  Went to the movie last night and saw "Christmas Holiday" with Deanna Durbin.  I still don't know whether I liked it or not.

          After the movie we retired to the ward room and drank cokes and chewed the fat.

          I must dash now, so with love to all three of my girls, adios.

Your loving husband,
